BASEES Postgraduate Workshop ‘MODERNITY’ , University of Glasgow - 23rd Jan 2014

This workshop is designed to bring together postgraduate research students to explore ideas relating to critical approaches to concepts of ‘modernity’ in the context of former Soviet and Central East European state-socialist countries.

We welcome applications from a wide range of (inter)disciplinary backgrounds, including, but not limited to: sociology, history, politics, geography and linguistics. We are particularly interested in ideas and practices relating to ‘modernity’, and interpretations of how modernities may shape understandings of and responses to processes of economic crisis, consumerism, extremism, apathy, gender, protest, media, unemployment, sexualities, culture, technological change, violence, migration and borders.

Please see Modernity - Call for Papers for further information.

Deadline for abstracts: Friday 29 November 2013
